Kathy Prest
  Kathy’s work reflects her love for ballet and modern dance, a passion which is intimately projected through the vitality and fluid nature of her sculptures. Within her studies, Prest attempts to capture the spirit of the dancer, their grace and their supple, yet elegant physicality. Prest feels that working in bronze is crucial to  capturing this sense of movement, which would ultimately be lost in the fine detail of mediums such as stone and clay.
 

Education

In 1996 Kathy attended classical sculpture classes with Frances Segelman and went on in 2001 to attend the Jill Berelowitz studio in north London where she learnt to sculpt with plaster. Overall, Kathy has developed her knowledge through studying anatomy books at home, however her talent has led her to teach at the All Saints Art Centre in London.
